We are experiencing issues with some of our users who receive the following issue:  

no network provider accepted the given path

We did not change the login script or anything.  What should I look for as to the culprit?

This is on Windows 2003 and XP on the users.

Given so little information, it is a long shoot. But I would look at the problem user firewall.
Turn it off first and if there is a change investigate the settings.
Next idea would be to see if the issue is user specific or persistent even for the Administrative log in.

This is not a communication issue as far as reaching the server.  It appears as though it's more on the permissions of forlders in general.

Also, need information on taking ownership of folders/subfolders and setting a permission at a root folder and having it propogate down.  

What's inheritance as well as well as how it could assist in this issue.

That is why I asked about the Admin log in.
You should not have any restrictions so please let us know if the problem goes away when you log in as Administrator.

Also going forward....
This error message can occur when you run a program with a universal naming convention (UNC) name when you are not logged on to the network, or if you are using the wrong frame type for the IPX protocol.


RESOLUTION

To resolve this issue, use the appropriate method: •Log on to the network using a valid user account. To do so, follow these steps:

1.Save and close any open work on your computer.
2.Click the Start button, then click Shut Down.
3.In the Shut Down Windows dialog box, click the "Close all programs and log on as a different user" option button.
4.Click the Yes button.
5.When you are prompted, log on to the network with a valid user name and password.

•Correct the Frame Type setting in the properties for the IPX protocol.
